Winner (1998) British Academy Awards, The Apartment, Best Film not in the English Language
Review Although Mimouni mimics Hitchcock's scenarios, it is never in the master directors' original vein, instead imparting his own graceful and competent styling. This is no mere De Palma-retro duplication, but rather an intelligent and independently paced homage to one of the silver screens greatest directors. Mimouni establishes himself, not only as a capable auteur, but a respectful film student as well. I should point out that my opinion of the film would remain at its very lofty level regardless of the Hitch intimations.

ReviewSource DVD Times
Review Gilles Mimouni in this admirable debut manages to mix into this film a great deal of evident influences with the French tradition of "film d'auteur" (he also wrote the script). The result is quite impressive: the cinematography is beautiful and the story manages to capture your attention and keep you guessing throughout much in the same way Hitchcock did at his best. Thankfully, L'appartment doesn't fall into the easy trap of parody - Hitch's influence is clear (it was filmed almost entirely on set and the soundtrack is as enthralling as Bernard Hermann's) but doesn't impede on Mimouni's very Gallic storytelling.
